We are now on the verge of another Scam Cup. Every year we are given a flip fest feast of gymnastics and Tim,Elfi and Al(eurgghh!). You can usually predict the podium and with this list it's going to be pretty easy to predict! Let's show release the preview;
JORDYN WIEBER, USA
This Geddert Twistar is showing that she will be Olympic Champion! She is reigning champion at this competition, so expect her to dazzle! It's sure to be a show stopping performance!
Aly Raisman is hot on Wieber's heels though! She is USA's proof in the pudding that they have elegant dancing,(not all chuck yourself to the floor or butt shelve bonanza blitz or cheeseburger slam,my all-time creation>?), but you know, she's vying for medals.
Well, she very new to this scene. Her first senior international! Romania have some experience here, take Amelia Racea, Tyson cup was her first senior international! The two Romanian girls coming have some flawless skills and beautiful routines, operation medal-time is under way!
Aaah, Rebecca. Lovely, to see the Great British flag being flown still at the American cup! We have history here, Downie and Whelan have served us well, but it's time for upcoming senior to do us proud. Great Britain have shown that this meet is only really for experience building, they aren't serious for medals and Tunney needs all the experience she can get in Olympic year.
Australia again have some history, Lauren Mitchell mainly flying the flag! I haven't seen Simpson much but I saw her a pac-rims, bit of a shaky floor but she had some pretty neat tumbling and dance elements. Definitely, an experience builder and Team Australia Olympic threat!
Germany are very well represented, Jolien Mobius, Kim Bui, Elisabeth Seitz and now Jarosch and another (classified info) gymnast are competing in 2012. We've learnt to love Nadine's beautiful gymnastics! She's worked hard to get out some nice routines and she helped the team make the Worlds team final, so she didn't have to go to the test event!
KATHARINE LISA HILL,GERMANY
You couldn't stand the wait.....Katharine Lisa Hill is the second German representative at this meet. Again, Hill not one of my all time strongest gymnasts but she has quite a lot of experience already, so this is probably training her up for the big stage in London. Germany will need to pick a seasoned gymnast like her, Seitz and Tolle, if they want a repeat of worlds.
I'm surprised Romania put her forward but I'm not moaning, Diana Chelaru should liven up the audience, yeah, I'm liking where this is going. Well, again, her experience is self-explanatory, Worlds Finals, European Finals, the list drags on. I'm guessing Chelaru is just training like Hill for the big event. My Romanian Olympic team prediction is;
RALUCA OANA HAIDU
SANDRA RALUCA IZABSA
DIANA LAURA BULIMAR
